The Blooms of Norfolk
The Wager was formerly published as The Christmas Wager in the Yuletide Happily Ever Afters anthology. This novella has been re-edited and expanded.
Lady Lottie is pretty and vivacious. Engrossed in caring for the flowers she loves; she tries her best to ignore the fact society considers her a featherbrain.
Lord Peake is dour, staid, and lacking in the social graces. His personality is not an asset in the marriage mart.
A simple favor proves to both Lady Lottie and Lord Peake that appearances can be deceiving, and a single act of kindness can lead to a lifetime of happiness.
Lord Chastain, darling of the gossip sheets, has seven days to turn a lady's head. Lady Iris, aware of the wager, finds the earl hard to resist.
As the pair spend time together, Chastain finds his own head turned and Iris discovers you can't believe everything you read.
